That got me thinking that there has to be variations to the traditional rice krispie treats- marshmallow, butter and cereal...
I found a few variations - using cocoa krispies or the berry krispies cereal (simple substitution) but what was most interesting was that you can easily make interesting variations using the basic recipe + instant pudding mix and 1/2 cup mix ins....
In addition, people don't just cut these into squares, they fill them in molds and also into cake pans and make them into cakes...Now, I prefer the bars.
1/4 cup butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies cereal.
Melt butter and marshmallows, stir in cereal, spread into greased pan. Cut into squares when cool.
Stir in 1/2 - 1 cup chocolate chips, m n m's, or other yummy things.
Sometimes, I stir in colored sprinkles
To basic recipe add, 1 pkg banana instant pudding + 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
To basic recipe add 1 pkg butterscotch instant pudding + 1 tsp vanilla
To basic recipe, mix in fruit loops and cap'n crunch cereal in addition to krispies.
Have you tried other variations on the classic?
